This year, I'm trying to keep the nine day fast. Yesterday was okay. It's hard to keep a fast when there's a lot of work in office and one is not getting enough time to do yoga. I think the deep breathing helps in curbing the appetite and still keep you fresh. Anyway, a friend visited and it was really nice to go for coffee and chat up. Then late night, we drove to the sixteenth century Shiv temple, for old time's sake. We used to walk there very often. The temple was open. That was surprising because usually they close the gates by nine at night. But we entered. It is huge with gnarled banyan trees all around. Last night, we walked in to the busy flapping and screeching of bats and shadows shifting on the ground. It was beautiful.

Thus has begun the time of the goddess.
